Archery Range

Recommended Posts

DooWap

I was driving from Eden Prairie to Shakopee the other day and noticed a archery range at 212 and 101. It seemed to be either within or right next to that WMA down there. Anyone know who runs that or if it's a public range?

I think that is a public range. I recommend the Archery Range at Staring Lake Park. It is on 212 and Prairie Center Drive I think, I would check the web site for directions. This is a really nice public range with about ten 5x5 block targets. You have to walk about fifty yards into the woods. Follow the signs. I've been there a couple of times this year and I usually have the place to myself.

The Staring Lake range is on PIONEER TRAIL west of 212. This is also a public range. It svery nice and clean and they use Block foam targets instead of hay bales.

I don't know of the range near 212 and 101. If its public it would be listed on the Chanhassen city website.

I think the one you're talking about is on 101 and old 169, right by the old bridge. It is brand new and I think it's public. there is a sign by the access road on the west end of the new bridge.

update, I found an article from the Shakopee paper.

"One of the first to use the new archery range, Kevin Carlson, 14, of Shakopee came down to the river Wednesday afternoon to practice with his dad Rich. Practice targets are up on the new course, located just north of the Minnesota River, on the west side of the County Road 101 bridge. To access the range from downtown Shakopee, go north on County Road 101, turn right into the parking lot and then follow the road underneath the bridge to the other side."

Yeah I heard about that range at Staring Park, I'm thinking about going to check it out tonight. I also got some more information about that range off 101. I heard they plan on making it bigger and having targets out to 90 yards. That would be pretty fun if you ask me.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!
